Promoting the Exploration of our Minerals

We have mineral interests in some of the most prolific oil and gas basins in the Continental United States.

Forestar owns or has leasehold interest in 935,000 net acres of oil and gas mineral interests located across several prolific oil and gas basins. Approximately 63% of our net mineral acreage is owned in fee with the remainder being held through leasehold interests.

Forestar owns over 590,000 net acres of oil and gas mineral interests located principally in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama and Georgia. Nearly two-thirds of our owned mineral acres are located in the East Texas, and Gulf Coast Basins in Texas and Louisiana. Our acreage is located in and around several oil, liquid and gas-rich reservoirs, including the Deep Bossier and Bossier-Haynesville Shale, Barnett Shale, Austin Chalk, James Lime, Wilcox, and Tuscaloosa Marine Shale. In addition, we own mineral interests in over 192,000 net mineral acres in Georgia and Alabama and 1,000 acres in both California and Indiana. We typically lease our minerals to third parties for exploration and production of oil and gas, generating lease bonus payments, delay rentals and royalties. We also promote seismic exploration agreements and joint ventures and we invest in lower risk oil and gas working interests.

Forestar has leasehold interests in 345,000 net acres of oil and gas mineral interests primarily located in the Williston and Anadarko Basins and in the Central Kansas Uplift. Our leasehold acreage is located in several formations including the Bakken, Three Forks, Tonkawa, Cleveland, Morrow and Lansing-Kansas City. Our activity on our leasehold interests ranges from average 7% operating working interests in the Bakken/Three Forks to drilling operations in Kansas and Nebraska.
